Where Should You Install Silt Fences?

Silt fences should be installed prior soil disturbance (earth moving) begins, and down-slope from the construction area. Silt fences should always be installed along the contour of the slope you are protecting. If not installed correctly it can allow water to concentrate, increasing water flow, and the chance of the silt fence to be undermined and fail. If installing a silt fence on a downward slope you should be constructing “silt fence returns” or “j’s”, positioned perpendicular to the silt fence. These structures will capture sediment and slow water flow. Silt fences are not designed to withstand high flow rates of water, and should therefore be located where water can form shallow pools behind the silt fence.

Dial Before You Dig

Prior to any work, conduct a site inspection insuring there are no hidden electricity cables or water pipes are in the area of operation. The best way to ensure workers safety is to view current plans of the job site or to “Dial Before You Dig” (1100) www.1100.com.au.


Silt Fence Installation

Below is a step by step process to install a silt fence by using the trenching method.

Step 1


Determine the most suitable or safest position is for silt fence installation. Dig a trench along this line using a trenching machine or digging tool. The trench should be a minimum of 150mm deep.

Step 2


Hammer the fence stakes or posts into the ground insuring they are secure and positioned on the downward side of the slope. The supporting pegs can be hardwood timber or steel pickets ranging from 900mm to 1650mm high.

Step 3


Attach silt fence fabric to the supporting pegs by either a stapler, tie wire or zip ties. Make sure the fabric is well secured as these pegs will be under immense strain from the captured silt and sediment.

Step 4


Pack the soil down into the trench, especially around the pegs as these are the structural points of the silt fence.

Reasons Why Silt Fences May Fail

Improper placement of silt fence to capture silt and sediment

Silt fence is constructed in concentrated flow paths

Inadequate trench depth with little or no soil compaction

Inadequate attachment of filter fabric to pegs or posts

Failure to maintain the silt fence after installation

Silt fence not installed along contours, producing concentrated water flow.

Lack of “silt fence returns” or “j’s” structures needed to slow water flows

Inadequate drainage through construction site

Inadequate strength due to insufficient pegs being used
